The first Valkyria Chronicles is heading to Switch, SEGA announced at SEGA Fes 2018 today. In Japan, it will be released as “Valkyria Chronicles for Nintendo Switch” this fall.
Very interesting. I've already bought the game twice on PS3 and PS4, so I'll pass, but it now means that every mainline title is portable.
I bought it on PS4 since it was one of the games on PS3 I loved the demo for but was never able to find the game for. Still haven't played yet because of my backlog, but glad it's coming to switch too. I won't be buying but it's a series that I hope won't die out again
Guess I am gonna have to beat this one. Since my PC came barely run it smooth enough at a medium resolution
Is it only releasing in Japan?
I'd hope not. It's digital only so distribution shouldn't be an issue and it's already been previously localized.
So glad I never got it for PS4.
I just bought it for ps4 :L WEll I might just hold off and hope this comes west, which it most likely will
I’d buy it.
Good. This will be a good fit on the Switch.
I'm not a huge fan of tactical RPG's, so I'm not highly interested in this, but it IS a temptation. There are a few other tactical RPG's I've enjoyed, but the list is so small that I'm worried I'd just be wasting my money. [and taking a copy off of shelves that someone who loves TRPG's more than me would love to have] Maybe I'll red-box or game-fly a copy of Valkyria 4 in the future, and if I like what I play of that, I'll go to Valkyria 1 to give the whole series a whirl.
This game is kind of unique in the genre. I would highly recommend it, and it's one of my favorite games of last gen. Its game play style would be a nice fit on the switch, and the story is really good to boot. I think the art style alone makes it worth it, but it's an all around great game that kind of went under the radar last gen, and stayed niche only to have a terrible Revolutions title.
